Which Smart Home Automation System Is the Best?

which-smart-home-automation-system-is-the-best

Comparing Control4 and Crestron

We see lots of products today labeled ‘smart home technology.’ From Nest thermostats to Philips Hue LEDs, these products can be controlled through remotes or phone apps. Many of them can be incorporated into a smart home automation system, but none of these devices on their own will make your home actually ‘smart.’

There are, however, brands that can sync all your technology for a truly automated home. Control4 and Crestron are arguably the most talked-about names in the market. Both Control4 and Crestron can control your lights, audio, thermostats, TVs, security devices, and much more.

But which is best for your house? The Premier Group is one of the few Control4 and Crestron dealers in Indiana with a certified showroom. We’ll share the differences and similarities between both systems so you can find the perfect solution for your Fishers-area home.

The Premier Group is determined to be your resource for all things home automation. To that end, we wanted to focus this edition on a key integration partner: Control4.

How New Moms Use Smart Security and Surveillance

How New Moms Use Smart Security and Surveillance

If you are a new mom, you are discovering that everything changes when you bring an infant home—from your sleep schedule to your daily habits. A smart home automation system complete with security and surveillance will help you and your spouse care for your newborn. From smart doorbells and intercoms to thermostats, lighting, and surveillance, The Premier Group is ready to help protect your little one with technology.

1. Silent Doorbells, Intercoms, and Smart Locks

The last thing you want after putting a baby to sleep is for your doorbell to ring loudly through the house. To help prevent your infant from waking up, use a video doorbell or intercom system to get a silent notification on your phone that someone is at the door. When your smartphone buzzes, you’ll know a guest has arrived to visit and then you can unlock the door right from there, or open it quietly for them. Of course if you see it’s a stranger using the video intercom, you can ignore the buzz.

Another way to eradicate the use of loud doorbells is installing smart locks. If your mom comes to visit the newborn, you can create a custom user code so when she arrives, she can just punch in the code and walk inside your house. Your baby won’t wake up and you’ll get to spend more time catching up with friends and family.

An Audio/Video Installer’s Guide to New Construction

an-audio-video-installers-guide-to-new-construction

According to a survey done by Coldwell Banker Real Estate, Americans are starting to think differently about homes that are “move-in-ready.” Last year, the survey which included 1,250 adults, showed 71 percent of Americans not only want move-in ready homes instead of fixer-uppers, but they also want them to be “smart-ready.” Forty-four percent of people said that smart-home technology should already be installed and another 57 percent would consider an older, renovated home if it had smart home technology. If you are a builder, architect, or designer, these findings are clear—new homes need to have new technology, and a professional audio video installer with home automation and home networking expertise should be the one to manage the project. Here are our top three reasons why.

  1. Increase Your Home’s Value

With the Internet of Things and automation on the rise, more families are interested in upgrading to a smart home—whether it be by building a new house or renovating a current property. If you add smart technology to your new home now, it will be well worth the investment down the road. Your home will have a higher resale value and be enticing to buyers if you sell in the future. From the perspective of a builder or real estate agent, the home will surely sell faster with a whole house audio system, smart thermostat, or whole home controls. Families want safe and stylish homes, but they also want the luxury of using today’s most current tech too.

  1. Make Your Home Future-ready

Of course, it’s essential to know a new house has the proper structural foundations, but does it have the right audio, video, and network foundations to support the current technology as well as the gadgets of the future? We live in a super-connected society—one that is online all the time. By installing the proper wiring, you’ll support all of the devices in your home—from distributed audio and video to lighting controls and surveillance systems. Installing the most up-to-date infrastructure in your new home will make it reliable and relevant for future generations. Even if the technology does change years down the road, you will be able to easily update your system in a connected home.

  1. Add Convenience and Simplicity to Your Home

We’ve talked about the benefits of luring homebuyers and prepping your home for future generations, but what about your own personal rewards? Smart home technology is convenient and can greatly enhance your lifestyle. You’ll be able to control every room and every feature easily on a smartphone or tablet, as well as prepare your spaces for any occasion with one simple press. Customize your settings with the swipe of your finger and save them for future use. You’ll find that a smart home will make your hectic schedule easier to manage and will simplify a lot of your activities. Who wouldn’t want that in their new dream home?

Use Your Smart Home to Wake Up

There’s nothing harder than having to wake up super early—unless you’re a morning person. To start getting used to hearing that alarm go off at 5 a.m. after sleeping in all summer, create a wake up scene using a Control4 system. Create a playlist of some fun songs and schedule them to come on at 5 a.m. You can even make the volume start off soft and gradually get louder to not startle you out of a heavy sleep. At the same time, your lights will turn on at 50%, the shades will open, and the TV in your bedroom will turn on the morning news. 

You can do the same thing for your children too. Ask them which songs they would like to hear in the morning while they get ready, and program their lights and shades to activate at 6 a.m. after you’ve had your coffee or got in a morning workout.

Living-Room-to-Kitchen
